Saturday will be the 2013 market debut of Olivia Canela. Some Good Market is coming to town and we will be there with our all-natural skin care line among other gifted artisans. As I wrote last year, the first market is always the most exciting one. The house has seen a whirling of activity in the past couple of weeks. Essential oils, butters and carrier oils have been arriving from the mainland. Labels and business cards have been printed, and blue jars everywhere! If you have the time, visit the Canonwood Hall (8 Military Road) between 10am and 4pm to meet and support some of NL’s local businesses.
Soap-maker guru extraordinaire Eli will be in charge of Olivia Canela’s table through the day. Don’t be shy to stop by to say hello or ask questions. Eli loves to talk about natural skin care and her knowledge is quite extraordinary.
So, where will I be? At the City Hall (Foran Room), just a mere 10-15 minute walk away. I will be with my fellow FEASters setting-up and hosting the 5th Annual FEASt FEST. Starting at 11pm, there will be workshops, information booths, and children’s activities, all related to seeds. Not to mention a sumptuous free meal put together by our very own food writer Andreae Callanan.
This is shaping up to be the ideal spring weekend. I just hope the weather cooperates.
